"From 2003 to 2012 it was best known in North America under the brand name Aussie Locker™*"

If you believe there advertising, they are Aussie lockers. Never heard of them until now. I have an Aussie in the d30 of my YJ and I have no complaints.

I've bought Aussie Lockers before. Never heard of this Lokka company until today. I think I'll give it a try.

Aussie is a brand name in the us.
lokka was the brand name elsewhere.

They are the same from what I heard.

A bit late but better then never right?

I've been running a lokka in the front of my zj for a bit over a month. Taken it to r&v a handful of times and its yet to disappoint.

Lokka and Aussie were made in the same plant. When Aussie had quality and delivery issues about 2.5 years ago, they moved production to the US.

Lokka is still made in Australia. (Which means they could still suffer from quality issues).

If you have a warranty claim, you will have to ship your locker back to Australia.

Because they are a corporation outside the US, any litigation has to be files in the International Court in The Hague and Aussie Locker doesn't feel it's worth the time/effort to do this to have the wording on Lokka's website removed (the one that affiliates them with Aussie Locker).

True story.
